What's this thing worth if I were going to sell it?
Look on Flippa and see what similar sites are selling for. My guess is that $5/mo niche site that hasn't been affected by Panda will probably sell for $50-$200.

I see sedo has a domain brokerage service but wondering if there is something better.
So there is no email in the whois, or it's domainbyproxy? Did you visit the page to see what is there? Did you google the actual domain to see if it shows up on any classifieds for sale?
How much are you willing to spend? Squatted domains are not cheap and if you're looking at .us it doesn't sound like you have a budget for this. 4 letter .com with any semblance of meaning won't be cheap.
